Ingredients:

1 pound smoked ham
4 potatoes cut in bite pieces
1 onion diced
1 carrot sliced in cilinders
1 cup dried split pea with lentil
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 inch ginger, minced
1 cup cut kale
3 tablespoons of olive oil

I usually make this soup with split peas only, but for this recipe I mixed it with lentil. Both peas and lentil are high in fiber, they reduce risk of heart disease and stabilize blood sugar.
